Badtimes virus

CATEGORY: Joke virus alerts (not considered hoaxes)

An obvious joke virus alert, author unknown. It plays on the hysteria surrounding the original Good Times hoax virus alert (see related link). Among other things, the deadly Badtimes virus can throw dirty socks on your coffee table and can even force you to make love to a penguin.

Trivia: a British band named "Laika" wrote a song about this joke virus alert.
